Scope and Topics

Semantic Web Services are the next step in bringing the web to its full potential, after adding semantics to the static web. Web services can significantly increase the Web architecture's potential, by providing a way of automated program communication and discovery of services. This can be achieved by adding semantic annotations to the description of the component interfaces already available via standard technologies like WSDL, SOAP and UDDI.

Recently, a new major initiative (WSMO) has started in this area which has attracted a lot of attention. WSMO is an ontology for different aspects of Semantic Web Services aiming at solving the integration problem. The joint working groups around this initiative are developing a proper formalisation language for semantic web services and providing (WSML) and developing a reference implementation of WSMO (WSMX).

The objective of this workshop is to discuss different implementations related to WSMO, and to gain insight in problems related to implementing WSMO. We welcome papers on related topics and demonstrations of prototypes or deployed applications.

Format and Attendance

The program will occupy two days, and will include presentations of papers selected from the full papers category and demonstrations of working implementations. There will be an invited talk by Frank Leymann. Subject to time constraints, there may also be a panel of experts on a selected topic. Panels will be conducted in such a way as to encourage discussion with the audience.

This workshop is open to all members of the SWS community. Please note that at least one author of each accepted submission must attend the workshop. Submission of a paper is not required for attendance at the workshop. However, in the event that the workshop cannot accommodate all who would like to participate, those who have submitted a paper (in any category) will be given priority for registration.


We invite submissions of full papers, short position papers and demonstrations. We encourage accompanying demonstrations with a position paper. All submissions should be formatted in Springer's LNCS style, and sent by e-mail to Accepted full papers and position papers papers will be included in the proceedings. The workshop proceedings will be distributed at the workshop and will be made available electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series.

Full papers should be not longer than 10 pages and will be peer-reviewed; position papers will receive no review. Accepted full papers will be scheduled for a presentation at the workshop. In some cases, papers may be presented as part of themed discussion panels. There will be a demonstration session scheduled for demostrating working implementations.

We emphasise that a larger word count does not necessarily confer any greater likelihood of acceptance. In some cases -such as papers describing early work on a project- it is appropriate for papers to be shorter than 10 pages. Figures that help the reader to quickly grasp the essence of complex material are strongly encouraged.

Position statements are limited to 2 pages and should include some or all of the following:
